    So if I jailbreak my ipt2g, then i will have to restore my ipod with the custom firmware that I already made. However, I will lose all my game save data/preferences. Is there any way to put my game save data (i need it) back on my ipod after i restore with jailbreak? i heard theat if you use a legit itunes backup on a jailbroken device, it gets messed up? is this true/what actually hapens? sorry if these are n00b questions, just wondering if redsn0w lite is worth it.

    I restored my iTunes backup after the jailbreak and everything was OK. You are forced to reboot your device after the restore, this means you have to enable DFU mode again and boot it using the standard jailbreak way.

    no you did everything right; it wont backup songs for you that aren't already in your itunes, so if your like me (i don't use itunes to get music..) you probably lost them and need to drag them back on manually. It does however bring other things back like settings and bookmarks in safari and other junk like notes
